Puerto Rico has a long way to go before being 'OK'

Puerto Rico faces much damage after Hurricane Maria made landfall last month, leaving much of the island without power or other essential supplies.

Puerto Rico's Medicaid funding problems come amid a federal spending formula that allocates different amounts to states and territories.

Puerto Rico should make the best of their misfortune by fully embracing solar power.

"People wave on from the sides of the roads as we pass by on our way to missions". The island left a powerful impression on me, and I hope to return to keep documenting its recovery.
